Try this...
Start the camera then go to the menu settings. Either reset all to default or use the various settings to set all to default as much as you can see. Some cameras have a RESET ALL option or button on the outside of the camera. This camera has a "RESET" to set all to default factory settings.
Then test the camera.
If it is still not working, check the card you are using to make sure it is good, or use a new memory card of the correct kind for this camera. This camera can take pictures and movies without any card, although limited amount.
Make sure the batteries are either charged or new of the correct type. One thing with batteries, make sure that in the menu settings you have picked what kind of battery this camera has installed. Most cameras which use double-A will give a choice to set the kind of battery in use. If the wrong battery is chosen, it can cause problems of various kinds.
